Cayo Guillermo Attractions
Cayo Guillermo Beaches
Playa Pilar This spectacular beach was an old haunt of Ernest Hemingway (wonder if he built sand castles here). We do know it was the inspiration to write 'the old man and the sea'. The beach is a popular day trip for guests staying on the islands of Coco and Guillermo with small bays flanked by high cliffs.
Playa Larga An ideal beach for children as at low tide it resembles a paddling pool with a couple of hundred metres of crystal clear waters. The hotels are near enough to enjoy their many facilities.
Playa Los Flamencos Located a few kms west of Larga, hence quieter and more isolated, But every bit as spectacular, in fact the beaches here are among some of the finest in Cuba.

Casa de la Trova Also in Moron on the Calle Libertad is this traditional Cuban nightspot, laid back with shades of Buena Vista Social Club.
La Cueva de Jabali Not strictly a bar or club, but worth the trip to Jardines del Rey to see this stunning Cuban cabaret in the heart of the grottos. You are sure to enjoy an unusual and entertaining night.
